I grew up in a better poor city in Mexico where I was thought by my grandma how to cook at a very young age, but unfortunately I had to move to united states (legally) for better opportunities leaving my grandma behind but never her memories. when I turned fourteen I was able to work at a small family own restaurant where I was able to work my way from a dishwasher to the restaurant manager and learned how to cook other dishes and started forming dishes with different origin dishes and my cultural dishes. but I wanted to learn more and since then I been worked in three different restaurants and learning about their food and management. thought I am only seventeen I will continue to learn more about food and restaurant management and get my culinary arts, pastry and baking, and restaurant management degree in the culinary institute of America and then being able to help many small family own restaurant businesses to have a better chance at being successful and giving back to the community and helping immigrants to have better jobs with good benefit.

Growing up I never really knew what I wanted to do with my life. After I graduated High School, I struggled trying to figure out who I was or where life would take me. I started a job in a restaurant right out of high school that I ended up staying at for four years and I would eventually work my way up to be the general manager. Becoming a general manager expanded my knowledge and has helped me grow as a human being. I have been in the restaurant industry for a little over four years now, and within these few years I have discovered my true calling. Being in the kitchen is where I truly found myself and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity that my first job gave me. I look forward to continuing to grow in my passion and learning more every day at The Culinary Institute of America. I know that education is very important, and this will give me the skills and knowledge that I need in order to one day own my very own restaurant. I am looking forward to learning from professional chefs to further my horizon in the culinary industry. I look forward to one day being able to put my education to good use through working my way up as a professional chef and then one day creating my very own menu that will be used in my own restaurant. I want to show the world what I can do with my passion and through hard work and determination I know that I will one day get there. I hope to be one of the best chefs out there with the help of the great chefs of The Culinary Institute of America. This scholarship would be a blessing for me because while I know that having the educational background to support me up is priceless, school is still very expensive, and this would greatly help me in this journey. The scholarship would provide me with the money I need to fulfill my dream of becoming a Chef. As I have tried to save money in order to become a member of The Culinary Institute of America, anything I can get would be a huge help to proceed with my career. It would be a gre

I am 10 classes away from completing my Bacholer's Degree at Johnson and Wales. I am a leader in the kitchen and I have 17 years experience. I am a mother not only do I want to set an example for my children that a strong work ethic and education is a solid foundation for sucess. Covid-19 has presented me an opportunity to slow down and invest in myself and my family's well-being.

I placing my faith in my own abilities and hard work to prove that best candidate for this scholarship, so I may be able to pay future loans and be able to pursue my goals.

One of my only good memories from childhood is food. My mother would cook and bake for my brothers, sisters and I, until she was hurt at work, while working in a kitchen, that led to many back surgeries. After she was hurt, she wasn't able to cook for us anymore, and that is when i picked cooking up. I now cook for my 3 children. I want to show my kids the importance of going to school and finishing school. I was accepted in to Les Cheneaux Culinary School in Hessel, Michigan, in Michigans Upper Peninsula. With having 3 kids this scholarship would be way more than appreciated!!!

I am trusting that my hard work and academic record proves that I am deserving of this scholarship. I have exhausted all of my efforts with student loans and I am so close to getting my degree in Culinary Arts. I just need help getting to that finish. I am hoping that I will get the help and support I need from you and I will definitely share with friends and family that I know are at my school or some other school to apply as well.

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
